GAUGE:
15 sts + 24 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
kfb (knit in front and back) Knit next st without removing it from left needle, then k through back of same st - 1 st increased.

M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting the horizontal strand lying between needles and placing it onto the left needle.

Knit this new stitch through the back loop - 1 st increased.

sk2p Slip 1 as if to knit, knit 2 together, pass slipped stitch over - 2 sts decreased.

NOTES:
1.

Always slip sts as if to purl.

2.

With yarn in front (wyif) refers to the side of the work facing you as you work the row; with yarn in back (wyib) refers to the side of the work that is away from you as you work the row.

3.

To move yarn from front to back or back to front, bring yarn between needles.

Take care not to wrap yarn over a needle, this could create an additional st.

4.

When changing color, do not cut old color until instructed.

Carry colors not in use along side of piece.
